"The tall ship Solway Lass was a beautiful old ship that sailed in the First and Second World Wars. The vessel was gorgeous and wooden, Here I went scuba diving for the first time! I saw beautiful reef, and loads of different fish, including a clown fish (Nemo!), and a giant blue fish (Elvis the locals called him) with intricate designs all over it. Also, there was a rope swing(!) (as you can see),it was great, Anyway, the boat was beautiful, and I spent 3 nights on board. It was lovely and peaceful, and I had a wonderful time. "
